# Tracking the current state of the field, as well as identifying new research avenues, this guide analyzesrecent data concerning antithrombotic therapy
# emerging data on the benefits of cholesterol-lowering agents in patients with CAS
# angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, as well as medications which lower homocysteine
# advances in surgical treatment such as less-invasive CEA, local anesthesia, and routine patching and synthetic grafts
# new studies on carotid angioplasty and stenting, catheter design, and distal protection devices
# surgery with carotid endarterectomy for symptomatic and asymptomatic stenosis, as well as ECIC bypass surgery for carotid occlusion
# surgical and interventional controversies

Providing a thorough overview of rapid developments in medical therapy, surgery, and angioplasty, this reference provides a complete review of carotid artery stenosis treatment, as well as a clear overview of carotid surgery and stenting. Offering chapters by seasoned authorities on epidemiology, imaging with ultrasound and angiography, cholesterol lowering, blood pressure management, homocysteine treatment, and diet modification, this guide is a stand-alone source for current information and understanding of this burgeoning science.
